Ichabod and Mr Toad

Film, Family and kids

Time Out says

Misleading title: Disney hasn't contrived the insertion of Ratty, Mole and company into Washington Irving's grisly tale of Sleepy Hollow. These are two separate featurettes, released in harness. The Wind in the Willows adaptation has a gag-a-shot scenario, breakneck pace and plays like an extended Donald Duck short. Great fun, provided you disregard the spirit of the original as comprehensively as Disney did. More uneven is the story of bumptious schoolmaster Ichabod Crane and his nemesis the Headless Horseman. It's a trite, chocolate box picture of colonial days - until the Horseman shows up for one of those nightmare sequences with which Uncle Walt so relished terrifying his kiddie audience.
